Youth Groups

Welcome to the Youth Groups section of our website

Our passion in Fields of Life is to be part of what God is doing in East Africa, striving for excellence, while serving the poorest and most marginalised communities. We see this journey as an adventure.

Fields of Life tackles issues of poverty by developing programmes to meet the specific needs of each community. Our East African staff are local and have vast experience and knowledge of the communities in the countries we serve. One of our priorities is to invest in young people and see them achieve their immense potential. Africa is in transition and we believe its future can be shaped by its 226 million 15–24 year olds.

Would you like to join us in this adventure and experience the joy and celebration of being part of the Fields of Life family, living, sharing and participating together in God’s work?

Short-Term Mission Teams are an excellent way to experience the East African culture, meet new people and best of all change lives. Each team has a different focus for a two- week period and each team member uses their life experience, talents and skills to make a difference. Team projects might include building, painting, health education, sports and children’s and adult’s ministry in association with local churches.

Closed Teams accommodate established church or youth groups. Fields of Life will help organise the itinerary and provide team leadership, training and preparation. Minimum age for travel is 16 years. Alternatively, you might want to join one of our open teams which are known as Cultiv8 Teams. These are designed for individuals who would like to apply for an opportunity to experience life in East Africa. Once a team has been selected, there are regular meetings to prepare each team member and to plan an itinerary based on the interests and skills within the group. All applicants must be over 16 years.

Prayer is a powerful way to help the work of Fields of Life. As a Christian organisation, prayer underpins all we do as we seek God’s guidance in our mission and work. We would love to expand our network of intercessors as our work grows and develops in East Africa. If you would like to support us by becoming a prayer partner and receiving our monthly Prayer Letters please contact [email protected] or you can download the Fields of Life Prayer Letter here.
